    The first thing I thought was black rings would really set that finish off ... But who am I to say?

    FYI Shipping Getting Expensive

    I just sent my Vanguard out USPS with $1500 ins. $83 ... only charged $50. The cruise bass left the building this week as well USPS $88 with $750 ins ... only charged $75 and I thought that would for sure be enough. Plus I bought $35 worth of tape and bubble wrap. From now on shipping is $90 on guitars/basses.

    Thanks everyone for your input ... I am truly a novice when it comes to world of the hysterical reissue. After reading a few pages on some LP forums I understand why HR owners are so often made fun of. Most comments are of some trivial nature regarding pointers, or color or burst or some other minor cosmetic issue. Oh yes, the truss rod condom, Thank you Stike for bringing that up. Its a shame because these are (at least mine is) great guitars that deserve to be played the snot out of. Anyway, heres what I found out about the color bleed. Its because of the cherry pore filler that was used to be historically accurate. It bleeds into the lacquer top coat. Lacquer is much hotter than pore filler (oil based) so it leaches out the color. During reading through a few threads some say it goes away if you play the the guitar a lot. Some say it gets worse if you play it a lot. One guy said he just took it to a guitar refinisher and he fixed it BOOM simple easy peezy no problem by stripping the binding and respraying the clear. The two guitar refinishers I called said it was a very difficult fix and it would never go away. The one refinisher said some counterfeiters actually paint the binding red because everyone knows the reissues bleed. There was a story on one forum where a guy took his reissue to a TANNING BOOTH 4 times to fade the red from the binding. Can you imagine doing that? I would rather masturbate in public. Another guy taped off his entire guitar except for the binding and left it out in the sun for a few days. That doesn't sound like a good idea. Anyway, the guy I jam with came over and he liked it and said that it makes it look old. I admit when you walk into my living room it looks like a old LP the the Allman bros might have played back in the day. That's good enough for me ... time to toss my OCD tendencies to the wind and play some fucking guitar. Can I get a FUCK YEAH???!!!

    The best guitar I've ever had ... the only thing I don't like is the binding color bleed, but I guess I'll have to learn to live with it.
